Kocktails with Karly: The Whiskey Smash

Welcome to Kocktails with Karly! Let’s do this! I was pressed for time this week… Oh, vacation, how much preparation you doth require! I didn’t make it to the liquor store and kept my fridge like a barren wasteland, empty and void of anything remotely helpful. I stood at my fridge surveying the meager things […]

Kocktails with Karly: The Blackberry Moscow Mule 

It’s almost summer, bitches. Time to bust out the berries! A Moscow Mule, as you know, is a beloved staple in our home. We always have ginger beer, vodka, and limes just in case we feel so inclined to make a delicious mule, and recently I’ve started buying more scrumptious BERRIES.  I made a raspberry […]

Cool people of the world! Welcome to Kocktails with Karly: The Michelada by DON CHELADA A few weeks ago a San Antonio company called Don Chelada reached out to me and offered to send me their awesome products to review, and today I will be reviewing their fantastic Michelada mix.

YouTube/Vlogging I have a YouTube channel and if you’re not already, GO SUBSCRIBE HERE!! I started vlogging 10 weeks ago making a weekly vlog of our adventures and it’s given me another outlet to be myself openly and honestly – uncensored KJ. I cannot tell you how much my confidence has sky-rocketed since I began […]

Kocktails with Karly: The Old Fashioned 

Conoisoirs of class! Hello, dahlings!    My Johncarl, my firstborn little boss of a boy, my baby king turned two on Saturday – and naturally, we had a badass party. My mom flew down to Austin to spend the week with us and be our “party bitch” – a role which proved quite fruitful! Some […]

Kocktails with Karly: The Backyard Punch

My darlings. My loves. My sweet peas. My homies. I didn’t have my shit together this week and although I DID make a cocktail for Kocktails with Karly, I utterly failed at taking pictures or even drinking the completed libation. I did not like it and forgot halfway into making it that I was supposed […]

Kocktails with Karly: The Paloma

Happy FRIYAAAAAAY!  I’m so happy, guys. Why, you may ask?  Because after FIVE (practically six) days alone with my two little homies, ALEX COMES HOME FROM HIS BUSINESS TRIP. The heavens have opened and God is smiling upon me – I made it through the week. I am a badass. But badassery aside, I cannot […]

Kocktails with Karly: The Mojito

We are in the shit, my friends. The shit of parenting a toddler that is entrenched in terrible two madness. Literal madness. You know how the Cheshire Cat says, “We’re all mad, here”? Well, that’s the fun kind of madness. This is the requires-alcohol-to-maintain-sanity kind of madness. So, hey! Let’s drink. This week I have […]

DONE HAVING BABIES (and why that doesn’t make me an asshole)

When I was pregnant with Harrison Fox I was always asked if I would try for a girl after I had the baby.  I hadn’t even pushed the second one out yet and people were already trying to rent out my uterus again. The question was always asked innocently but even so, each time it […]

Kocktails with Karly: The Long Island Iced Tea 

“Mommy doesn’t get drunk she just has fun.” – Linda Belcher Wise, wise words my friend.  I just finished my Long Island iced tea, and thought “Ya, now is definitely the time to start writing.” Obviously. I keep hinting to Alex that we should now order pizza. He keeps saying no. Pray for me.🙏🏻 Long […]
